As I mentioned in my last post, I decided to enter Ashley Horner’s new $1,000 10-week transformation contest. Her last 12-week contest was so successful, she decided to host another one. You must be doing one of her programs (although you’re allowed to add other stuff in) to participate in this contest. I already had Magnify You and Achieving Prominence, so I didn’t have to make a purchase to participate.
We are being held accountable by mini challenges, and we have a huge Instagram support community, which is fantastic. Online participation plays a role in your overall performance/judging. Hashtags for the contest are #ashleyhorner #ashleyhornertransformation #beautyinstrength #becomingextraordinary #magnifyyou #pipehitter, #achievingprominence, as well as anything else anyone wants to tag on. If you want to check out some of the contestants, give those hashtag searches a go.
For this challenge, I decided to re-do Magnify You. So far, I’ve really been putting forth the effort, and I feel great!
The challenge started this past Monday (November 17). “Before” photos were due Sunday (November 16) night. I went to Costco over the weekend and stocked up on supplies. I purchased chicken breast, lean ground beef (I don’t like ground turkey), organic eggs, organic salmon, organic baby spinach, frozen pineapple, frozen mango, frozen triple berries, lemons, limes, and a few more staples.
I will be eating completely healthy, but I’ve decided to not log my food. I will be measuring my portions (that won’t change), but I won’t be so anal about making sure I record every little thing I put into my mouth. Not hitting my macros was stressing me out. As long as I keep my choices healthy for now, I should be good. Getting back to basics.
Alright…on to posting about my daily workout. Stay tuned.
